Purrint build 26
Quickly extend the PrtSc key with this simple screen capture tool

Purrint is a small and simple tool which makes it easier to save your screen captures.

The program is extremely basic. There are no extra screen capture types, for instance - you can't grab scrolling windows, freehand areas of the screen or anything else: it's just about saving either the full screen or individual application windows.

This does make Purrint very easy to use, though. There are no extra hotkeys to learn, for instance - all you have to do is press PrtSc or Alt+PrtSc as usual. The program then pops up a window displaying the captured image. And you can either copy the image to the clipboard, print it, or save it to disc (in BMP, PNG, JPG or GIF formats) with a click.

If you're taking a lengthy series of captures then the good news is that you can tell Purrint to choose your preferred options automatically. In which case you can keep hitting PrtSc or Alt+PrtSc and, say, have the program automatically save your captures to disc (by default it'll create the files Purrint001.bmp, Purrint002.bmp, Purrint003.bmp and so on).

There are plenty of configuration options, too. You can set the quality of saved JPEG files, reduce the colour depth of saved images, save files using the name of application window, and so on.

And all this is presented very simply, in a portable 277KB executable which runs under any version of Windows since 95 and requires just a little over 2MB RAM.

Verdict:

We generally prefer our screengrab tools to support more capture types - freehand, DirectX and so on - but if you can get by with just full screen and individual window captures then Purrint could be very useful.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
